Overview

This cop checks for uses of class variables. Offenses are signaled only on assignment to class variables to reduce the number of offenses that would be reported.

You have to be careful when setting a value for a class variable; if a class has been inherited, changing the value of a class variable also affects the inheriting classes. This means that it's almost always better to use a class instance variable instead.

Examples:

# bad
class A
  @@test = 10
end

class A
  def self.test(name, value)
    class_variable_set("@@#{name}", value)
  end
end

class A; end
A.class_variable_set(:@@test, 10)

# good
class A
  @test = 10
end

class A
  def test
    @@test # you can access class variable without offense
  end
end

class A
  def self.test(name)
    class_variable_get("@@#{name}") # you can access without offense
  end
end
